Retiring in Europe

I'm retiring on about $30,000 per year, entertaining the possibility of retiring in southern France or Spain. Is this at all possible or advisable?

Any good areas to look at?

Thanks!

I know many people who have done this! In Burgundy , it's an awesome climate and beautiful cheap housing and a healthy lifestyle !  Good wine !!!!
France is awesome !!!

Oh, I have no doubt that it's incredible. Thank you!
I'm not sure, however, that it's in my budget.
